Small but very well done. Well maintained grounds, easy access off I-57. Very friendly owners, from reservation call to parking assistance. We highly recommend this park. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park with a pretty pond. Friendly helpful hosts, good hook ups, nice pull through so. Decent wifi, no cable but a good number of over the air channels. Sites are shady & a good size. Tree lined paved driveway, internal roads are gravel, well maintained & not dusty. Only 1 washer & dryer, but they look new, work well & are reasonable. No highway noise, but convenient to the interstate. We will return. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nothing nearby. We needed our extra sewer hose to reach the connection.

Very pleasant RV park with easy access from I-57. We had a site facing the pretty little lake. The site was level and WIFI was good. We had a little difficulty getting the satellite for DTV due to the trees, but it finally locked on.

Very nice walking path around the lake. The owner was very accommodating and escorted us to our site. Online reservation system works well. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park was a very friendly place to stay, all of the staff were great. We were taken to our site, lined up for the best sewer hookup and explained when and were to put the trash. They have a nice lake to walk around, all of the park was clean and comfortable to be in. I would stay there again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is right off of the interstate but we did not hear any of the traffic. Easy pull through sites with full hookup, including septic. We were escorted to our site and asked latter on if we needed anything. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Just stopped for the night.

This was our second stay here. It's a pretty little campground surrounding a small man-made lake right off I-57. Very convenient for an overnight stop but reservations are suggested as it's very popular! There is some traffic noise from the interstate but it's certainly not bad.

The sites are fairly well spaced for a private park. Service connections are convenient and all worked well. Very friendly and helpful staff!

There's a small walking path around the lake with comfortable chairs and swings available for relaxing. You can catch and release fish in the lake. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice level lots and easy utility hook-up. Park is easy to get to from interstate. Highway is close but there is minimal noise. There is a small lake which is nice but did not use it for anything. Looks like one could rent kayaks or maybe fish in it. WiFi worked well and good Verizon reception. I also used a satellite dish and had good reception.

This is our third stay at this park. We were here for only one night this time. It is close to the highway but with little road noise. It is small but sufficient. The spaces are gravel and level and not too tight. The hook ups are conveniently located. The laundry facilities are clean and fairly priced. There is only one washer and one dryer. The park is situated on a small lake where fishing is available. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will most certainly return. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here twice this summer, once in June and once in July and thoroughly enjoyed both stays. We had a pull through site overlooking the lake both times and good hookups. It is convenient to the highway (you can see I-57 from the park, but the noise doesn't make it there and the park is very quiet.) There is a Pilot truck stop at the same exit for convenient fill-up coming or going. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

As with our previous stay here (see my 2014 review) our supposed full hookup site's sewer was too far from the pad to be worth getting out extra hose for just an overnight stay. Fortunately, we were able to get satellite TV reception and the Wi-Fi system worked for us. The sites are fairly large but, as indicated above, the utility placement is poor. This park is fine if you don't need convenient sewer or TV. There is nothing within easy walking distance. Like most parks on this trip, there was no recycling. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Really attractive park with most sites facing large fishing pond surrounded by farm fields. Level gravel site with mature trees, good sized grass areas between sites, good utility connections, very good wifi, very good Verizon signal. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here several times in the past and have always been well satisfied with our experience. They're doing some upgrades and adding sites, but the most important feature for us is that it has been open year-round. We always stop here each year when heading south. It's the first campground open during the winter after leaving our home in WI and we so appreciate being able to get off the freeway easily, pull in and park quickly, and always get super-friendly service. They've recently added a dog park which is also very much-appreciated. This year we also stayed here overnight on our return trip home. Definitely a good stop for us and very reasonable too! We love the fact that we can depend on staying here even during the cold months so we don't have to find a motel and restaurant just to spend the night and have dinner and breakfast out while traveling.....saves us time, money and hassle!

We finally stayed here after bypassing this park 30+ times over the years during our annual May and October trips to and from the Gulf Coast. I just don't understand the high ratings for this place. I'd like to say we had a FHU site but the utility placement left us unable to use the sewer. The sewer was at the entrance of fairly long, level, gravel site and almost 20' off the RV pad. We would have need over 30' of sewer hose to reach it. I saw numerous RVs using at least 30' of sewer hose or not hooking up to the too far away sewer at all. In order to get satellite TV (only a few sites are SaTV friendly) reception we had to park fairly far forward in the site which meant we had to use every inch of our 25' cord to reach the electric and a 25' water hose to reach the spigot. There is no cable TV. Some sites have the utilities positioned OK, but to many do not. Their 802.11 network was very slow at times dropped on a few occasions. Since this park has a number of extended stay customers, the 2 machine laundry is inadequate. The bathrooms (2 showers, 2 stalls, and 2 sink for each gender) were adequate for a small park. The playground equipment was OK and their lake (a man made pond) is nice. The fellow who checked us in was very friendly, there are no park handouts - just the receipt. I saw no sign of any recycling. This is a decent park, but certainly not a 9 or 10. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Super friendly staff helpful staff settled us in after a warm welcome. Exceptionally dog friendly with a brand new fenced dog run (big enough for our big dogs) and doggie treats on arrival. The place is well groomed with nice wide and long lots with grass and hardtop.gravel to park on. They have benches overlooking the lake and lovely flower beds to sit and contemplate life. The sunsets were fabulous. We stayed a week and we really liked this place. The laundry is small, 1 washer and 1 dryer but cheap. It's a short drive from the campsite to every major box store you could want. The campground is set well back from the interstate so there was some noise but far off. We heard coyotes and saw jackrabbits. The lake is a small manmade one stocked with fish. There is a creek/drainage ditch nearby making the boundary on one side of the park. It was pleasant to walk around the lake with our dogs. It was late fall when we arrived and we stayed a week because we had friends to visit. Internet alternated between impossibly slow and super fast and was mostly adequate to good though we found we could not use Skype. They had only one space available for a full week as it is very busy with many fellow snowbirds migrating south although most don't stay more than one or two nights so call ahead for a longer stay. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.
